Art in the Long View at Lunchtime
In conversation with artists and MoMA Lecturers, explore long-term, process-based art and its impact on the experience of art. While many artists establish concrete goals, the processes we are interested in examining may span the lifetime of the artist, require ongoing participation or discussion, and be linked more to research and exploration than to a pre-established plan. Bring your lunch and discover how these challenges to the constraints of time and the expectations of final product and finality force viewers and participants to reconsider the role of art in society. This series serves as an incubator of ideas in advance of our upcoming Contemporary Art Forum on May 2 and 3.

This lecture provides an overview of Abstract Expressionist New York, an exhibition drawn entirely from the Museum’s vast holdings of Abstract Expressionism. In addition to tracing the development of Abstract Expressionism from its auspicious beginnings in the 1940s to its seasoned maturity in the 1960s, the talk situates these works within the context of MoMA.

Ágnes Berecz (PhD, Université Paris I / Panthéon-Sorbonne) teaches art history at the Department of Graduate Studies of The Fashion Institute of Technology and at The Museum of Modern Art.
